Dear all,

I am having a weird problem when importing SRTM data using gdal_translate or 
r.in.srtm in GRASS (which also uses gdal_translate): nodata values are loaded 
as 32768 (positive) even when -32768 is explicitly set in the script. After 
import gdalinfo reports nodata as -32768, but r.info (in GRASS), cmm (in 
OSSIM) and OpeneEV all report these cells as 32768 (positive). I am using 
gdal 1.4.0. Is anyone else having this problem as well?
